The Kindness Calendar is a platform for showcasing real life stories of kindness. We hope that by reading and taking part, people will be inspired to pledge new acts of kindness.

Who’s behind this?

People United is a pioneering arts organisation and charity that believes that kindness has a special role to play in making the world a better place.

Our work explores and celebrates kindness through the arts. We run extraordinary projects with artists which change people’s lives, focusing on positive themes such as courage, values, belonging, wonder and love.

And we support and mentor individuals, projects and neighbourhoods to pioneer new arts and kindness initiatives that make their communities better places to be.


Our new Kindness Projects Fund 2016:

Linked to the Kindness Calendar, we are launching a Kindness Projects Fund to support ordinary people who want to make a positive difference to others in their community through an arts or creative project. Through donations from the Kindness Calendar we aim to help establish 5 new community-wide kindness projects in 2016.

We will keep you updated on the people and projects we help and will share their stories here and on our website. If you can help, any amount would be greatly appreciated: please click the donate button. Thank you.
